Q) I have a six year old granddaughter that has lived with us since she was born. she used to have medicaid thru her mom, but we recently found out the she doesn’t have any more coverage. my wife and I do not have legal custody of her but my wife does have power of attorney from the school. I tried to get here coverage thru my job but was told i couldn’t unless i adopted her. Her mother is not going to go for that i know. I need to get her some insurance. is there any way that i can reinstate her or is there any other suggestions that you may have, any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated thank you again in advance
A) Each state govern their Medicaid programs differently and generally provide coverage for children in low income bracket. You will need to visit your state medicaid office and speak with a counselor regarding her unique situation and apply for coverage.
